Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame has stepped forward to clear the air on reports that suggest he is crafting Hollywood actress Amanda Bynes‘ upcoming hip-hop album.
According to Flocka, he is standing behind Bynes’ music career but is not as heavily involved in it as many people believe.
“We doing a song,” Flocka said in an on-street interview. “They marketing an album. I guess they put magical dollars in my pocket for it. But um, she said she wanna be a rapper, she wanna hit the club, she’s f*cking with the king of the clubs. [Her rap name?] AB. It’s AB. AB. She don’t need street cred, she got Disney cred.” (TMZ)
Last week, buzz about Waka and Amanda working on a new record called Shots bubbled online.
Forget Wyclef Jean … Amanda Bynes is hashing out a record deal with rapper Waka Flocka Flame for her upcoming hip hop album — and Waka tells TMZ, it’s going to be legendary. Waka — who runs Brick Squad Monopoly records — tells us, the deal hasn’t been signed yet but it’s basically in the bag … in fact, he’s already hired people to start penning Amanda’s songs. Waka says he and Amanda FaceTime at least once a week and text every day — mostly about her rap career … but also about motivational stuff, like “keeping her head up from the haters.” (TMZ)
Philadelphia rapper Drock is one of the first hip-hop artists to show a public disinterest in Bynes’ antics by recently releasing a diss song called “Sour Patch Kid.”
Drock recorded a YouTube that explained his song and he addressed the former Nickelodeon star saying, “You didn’t event show up [for the Wyclef meeting]. That’s disrespectful … He’s a legend.” The rapper then blasts Amanda saying, “You are running around with some knuckleheads calling Miley Cyrus ugly and sh*t — she’s better than you. At least she’s confident. You running around getting all these surgeries – you have self esteem issues … you need a shrink.” The song has lyrics that address those issues: “She a bop beefin’ over a chick” is referring to how she is bullying Miley Cyrus, Herman tells us. ” Rip pounds … .sweetie go insane, then blow your brain, we know the game, about.change not fame” is referring to her seeking fame and drugs not making good music, adds Herman.

Following its release, Drock hit up SOHH and said he planned to go after Waka next due to their association.
“‘Sour Patch’ did 150,000 in one day so I’m probably going to drop the Waka Flocka record in the next week. He’s a clown. This is going to be so easy,” Drock added. “I’m a true lyricist and he’s just a clown, a muppet. That’s his name right, he’s a muppet. At this point, I don’t give a f*ck. I’m not doing this for my fans. I love my fans and if you’re not my fan, hopefully you’ll listen to my music and you’ll become a fan. I’m doing this for a reason, for art, for the culture of hip-hop music and what I feel is moving. People like Kendrick Lamar, I love his music but people like Waka Flocka, he’s doing nothing to better the music, so I don’t give a f*ck about him. He’s setting hip-hop back another 10, 15 years. He’s a f*cking hype man. Even his man Gucci said he’s not loyal. F*ck him, I don’t give a f*ck.” (SOHH)
